ABSTRACT
The article addresses some issues concerning internal divisions and boundaries of Ukraine. According to the author, it would seem that definitions of Ukrainian identity are linked to identifications with Europe which at the same time serve to underline the distance from Russia. The main part of this article engages with key texts by two Ukrainian scholars and draws on their arguments to explore the historical context of European region formation and continental demarcation in the east.
